Has anybody tried to use the PatrolBot's joystick with ROS' joy?

The tutorials mention that "joy" requires the joystick be accessed from a /dev/input/jsX file, however the joystick that comes included with a PatrolBot (the big, blocky, yellow device with a joystick, a knob and a "go" button) is not, as far as I know, set as dev/input device (frankly, I'm not even sure it's able to be accessed from the onboard computer as a device, anybody know?).

I just wanted to know if anybody out there has tried using the joystick within ROS via the "joy" node or something similar.
